Food contaminated with E. coli O26:H11 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea. In severe cases of illness, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis or live with permanent kidney damage. In severe cases of illness, people may die. This recall was triggered by a recall in another country. CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the agency will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.
